Technique Video: Making and Repairing Tungsten Needles
Micro tools are necessary when isolating, mounting, and handling 1-100 µm sized particles without the use of micromanipulators. In this In this Hooke College of Applied Sciences video, Kristie Diebold shows you how to create and sharpen a tungsten needle.
If you are interested in particle manipulation, consider enrolling in Hooke College’s Sample Preparation Techniques course.
